Tonya Roper-Lucas



Hello! My name is Tonya Roper-Lucas. I am truly excited to be a member of the
Stono Park Team. I am a native of Charleston, SC. I received my Bachelor's
degree in Elementary Education from South Carolina State University and my
Master's Degree in Early Childhood from The College of Charleston. Later I
obtained my National Board Certification (2002 and 2012) and my Reading
Recovery Certification.
I have been an educator for 28 years. Nine of those years have been spent
serving as a Reading Interventionist or as a Literacy Coach/Interventionist. I
enjoy exposing students to the many possibilities that our world offers by
teaching them how to read. As an Interventionist, I feel that it is imperative to
find the precise instructional prescription for each reader to excel.
I am blessed to be married to my workaholic husband, Derrick. We have two
very active teenage daughters, Maya and Tia.
